Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Form over Function: Handlebars

What kind of handlebars do you guys think looks the coolest on any type of bike. Drops, Flats, Bullhorns... What do y'all like?!

I like drops+hoods because I ride my bike, it's not a fashion accessory.

Drops + hoods or risers for street/road use or compact drops for the drome. You can get bars that function well and look good, this is a silly question.

drop horns look perty serious (like nitto rb-21s). as to "best" I defer to the masses.
